Morrissey dropped by record label following release of new album
A statement was published on his fansite, True To You
Sunday 10 August 2014
Morrissey is looking for a record label, after being reportedly dropped by Harvest Records.
His fansite, True To You, for whom which the singer often writes, published a statement yesterday (9 August) announcing that he was no longer working with the company.
“Three weeks after the release of Morrissey's World Peace Is None Of Your Business (#2 UK, #14 US), Capitol Records/Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey, as directed by label boss Steve Barnett. Morrissey is once again in search of a record label,” read the post.
On 5 August, the musician published a post which seemingly criticised the label’s handling of his album release, which reached number two in the UK album charts.
He praised three fans who had created “well-crafted” videos of tracks from the record.
“These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist,” he wrote.
“Yes, a similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself. God bless social media!”
